Reef Fishing Merimbula - Reel Affair

Reel Affair Fishing Charters operates out of Merimbula on the far south coast of NSW. Reel Affair Fishing Charters offers Reef Fishing, Deep Sea Fishing, Kingfish Charters and Game Fishing on a private or share charter basis.

Just off the coast of Merimbula lies many inshore reef systems and the Continental Shelf lies only 20 nautical miles off our coastline, which makes Merimbula an ideal base for fishing.

Merimbula’s  inshore and Deep reef systems provide a good variety of fish, including: Snapper, Morwong, Kingfish, Gummy Shark, Cod, Flathead, Leatherjackets and Salmon.

The warm currents that run along the shelf off Merimbula, are home to a wide range of Game fish including: Yellowfin, Albacore and Striped Tuna; Blue, Black and Striped Marlin, Broadbill, Mako and Tiger Sharks.

All our fishing charters are serviced by our Skipper and First Mate, to ensure you have an excellent day’s fishing. All bait, tackle, licensing requirements, tea, coffee and a light morning snack are provided on board. Guests are welcome to BYO any alcohol or food they may like throughout the day.

The number of anglers on board varies by fishing type to ensure you have plenty of space and comfort on board. Passengers wishing just to observe the days fishing are welcome.
